Our founders Wesley and Kishan were both working in a field of companies who knew more buzzwords than they knew about how to execute digital innovation. Knowing or not knowing, these companies were screwing over clients day after day and restraining the world of digital innovation.
In 2013, they decided that the only way to fix this dreary and decelerating problem, is to start doing it themselves. And so Eli5 was born.
Both 24 at that time, they rented an office space in the Red Light district of Amsterdam, spent all of their money on computers and furniture, and started offering modern innovative methods to build digital solutions.
In the early days they both spent the daytime to do meetings and ideation sessions, and pulling all-nighters to design and develop digital products and services. They were among the first software companies using the lean startup approach, while guiding their clients through this jungle of digital.
It’s our mission is to speed up the development time while improving the quality of digital products, all over the world. An ongoing mission, with many milestones ahead. To this day, this is still what gets us Eli5ers up with a smile every morning.
